This one is some yummy comfort food at our house. It's a dish I've made before, and one that my wife used to make a lot (using the indoor oven). It's a simple dish, a one-pot two-step. Easy, yes; healthy, not so much...!
- 1 medium to large onion, sliced
- 3 cloves, garlic, chopped
- 4-5 green onions, chopped
- 2-3 Sweet peppers, chopped
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 3 slices bread, chopped
- 2 eggs
- very liberal shakes of parsley
- 1/2 package cream cheese
- 4-5 medium potatoes
- 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
- Juice of 1 lemon
- A layer of grated cheddar
I started off by heating a tablespoon or two of oil in the dutch oven with about 15-20 hot coals below it. I wanted to get the oil nice and hot to sautee all of the ingredients in the first set.
Back out at the dutch oven, I arranged the meatballs on top of the now carmelized veggies, with a little space between each. I scattered in the potato slices inbetween the meatballs, then spooned the soup concentrate from the cans onto the top. I spritzed on the lemon juice, and closed the lid. I set it with 10-12 coals on the bottom and 16-18 on top, and let it bake for about an hour, or until the potatoes were nice and soft.
Then, I brought it in. I put a layer of grated cheese on top and put the lid back on, letting the cheese melt.
It's yummy, gooey, and oh, so comforting. Love it!
